Survey of Student Opinions: A Study Initiated by the Student Government Association of Calhoun Community College.
Searcy, Robert D.
In spring 1993, the Student Government Association (SGA) of Calhoun Community College (CCC), in Alabama, initiated a survey of all CCC students in day and evening classes at the main campus and at two off-campus sites to determine student opinions regarding CCC agencies, services, and student activities. Of the 410 students who returned completed surveys, 43% attended primarily day classes on the main campus, 13% attended mostly evening classes on the main campus, and the remaining 44% attended classes at the two off-campus sites. Results of the study included the following: (1) 49% of respondents indicated that they were attending CCC to earn an Associate's degree, 35% to earn a certificate, and 16% to earn transfer credits; (2) 82% of students preferred that CCC continue on the quarter system, rather than change to the semester system; (3) with respect to CCC services, the highest ratings were received by the bookstore (65% rating it as "good" or "excellent"), the library (63% rating it as such), and the admissions office (50% rating it as such); (4) 58% of respondents indicated that they would attend college sponsored student activities including big-name entertainers and guest speakers; (5) of the 370 students who responded to a question regarding voting procedures, 55% felt that SGA voting procedures should be extended to include night and extension students; and (6) respondents were generally interested in an increase in on-campus activities, including intramural programs (37%) and fraternities and sororities (41%). The survey instrument, respondent demographics, and open-ended student comments are included. (Contains 92 graphs.) (MAB)
